Baking Soda Biscuits




This Friday, April 18, Rina will be the substitute in our room, as I get a medical check-up. As well as looking forward to going on a whole-school skating trip, she will also be reading an Appalachian folk tale and making some biscuits with the kids. Here is the recipe, in case y'all want to make them at home!

Sody Sallyratus Biscuits

2 cups flour
¾ teaspoons sody sallyratus (baking soda)
1 ½ teaspoons cream of tartar
½ teaspoons salt
½ cup butter
½ cup milk
2 eggs

• Put enough wood in the firebox to heat the oven to 400 degrees :-) Then put the flour, sody sallyratus, cream of tartar, and salt in a bowl; sift them together with your fingers

• Work the butter into that dry stuff till the mixture looks like little cumbs

• Stir in the milk and eggs. Keep stirrin’ till the dough follows the fork ‘round the bowl

• Knead the dough about twenty times on a well-floured surface

• Cut out a dozen big biscuits and bake 12 – 15 minutes

• Eat those biscuits while they’re still warm, and don’t you be forgettin’ the butter and honey on top
